I have a problem using drag-n-drop with files that are located on samba
and that are not following the Dos 8.3 file convention, with a cmd-file on a
Windows NT Workstation.
I am running Windows NT Workstation with Service Pack 6a in connection with
Samba 2.2.8a shares
on Suse Linux 9.0 Kernel 2.4.21-166.
By double clicking such a file with a suffix like mdb, doc or xls the
with these suffixes will open and load the files without any problems.
Here comes the problem: On the NT Workstation I have a small cmd-file.
copy "%1" c:\
When I am using the file as follows
test will copy the file from the samba share to drive c:. No Problem.
Now using drag-n-drop H:\1234567890.mdb onto the icon of test.cmd
results in the following messages
The system cannot find file .....
0 File(s) copied
The problem is specific to Windows NT Clients. It does not occur on Windows
The problem is specific to Samba Server. It does not occur on Windows
I can switch that problem on and off with samba parameter mangled names.
But it not possible to configure mangled names = yes. So I am looking for
a solution within Windows.
Thanks in advance
